of maryland, because bob ehrlich, who was governor of maryland and chose michael steele to be his running mate, is going to be pilloried because michael steele is being attacked by every republican in shoe leather, including charles krauthammer. this is the kind of judgment you have, to pick michael steele? >> it does not help barack obama, though. >> that's right, and the irony is that this is the time that republicans should be a triumphant. instead, michael steele's distraction has them back on their heels. people knew he was not a great manager or a fundraiser, but they said he was great on message. that has not exactly turned out. we have gone back and forth on this. by now "politico" is saying that republicans are more likely than not to take the house. we changed that this week and michael steele's distracting is hurting fundraising. >> this is the year where republicans have everything at their backs. the economy, discontent with obama, the gulf oil spill, everything. they keep stepping on it. they have michael steele, they have john boehner comparing the financial crisis to an ant, an

they are limiting their opportunities to drive. so what we should do is look at states like maryland that have a graduated driver's license program for all new drivers regardless will of what age they are. >> we want to stop the joyriding and the kind of attitude that teens are going to get in the car with six of their friends like we've seen in the horrible horrendous accidents and take down the road and go through a stop sign and everyone dies in the car. that is what we want to try to stop. >> which is why banning cellphone use while driving and banning texting is a top priority for senator klobuchar. the stand up act forces states that do not restrict cellphone use while driving to lose federal highway funding. >> no matter what age, 23 times more likely to get in an accident if you are texting and no text is worth dying for. i find out our staff about talking about one guy who i adore who has championship texting while he drove and i'm driving with him and he is texting and it was way back when we had one seat in the senate controlled the balance in the senates. and i say so we are all wo
is an assistant professor of journalism at the university of maryland, following a 20 year career at "time" magazine, reuters and hearst newspapers. geoff morrell, secretary gates said today these two events were not related, it was not triggered by the mcchrystal flap. but do these two events taken together, the mcgri mcgris-- mcchrystal fee as sow-- fiasco and the new guidelines issuing a new chill between the military and the press. >> we hope not. and we are determined to make sure that does not result from all this. i think it's understandable that in the wake of the mcchrystal incident that there may be some members of the military who may become more reticent, more reluctant to engage in with the press for fear of the consequences. and in the wake of this memo there may be some who overinterpret it, misinterpret it as some sort of clamp-down between our engagement with the press. and that is not the case on either count. we are not trying to throw up barriers. what we are trying to do is create better communication between our building and the press corps and by extension the americ
are blocked out of the insurance market. >> reporter: popper who ran the maryland state high risk pool before he took his post at h.h.s., estimates as many as 400,000 americans may enroll in the new federally funded program. >> you talk directly to the radiation oncologist. >> reporter: 29 states in the district of columbia will run their own high-risk programs using their share of a $5 billion federal pool of money set aside. 21 others have opted out. in those states h.h.s. will run the pools through a third party administrator. to qualify applicants must be an american citizen, have been denied coverage by an insurer because of a medical condition, and be uninsured for at least six months. for carol, all of this can't come soon enough. right now he's stuck paying out of pocket for her medical care and prescription medication which she estimates totals $8,000 a year. >> for me to see my cardiologist again, i should have another echo cardio gram. that will be $1200. in the back of my mind there's always that fear, you know, if i have a twinge in my heart or one day i might be feeling a little
